At Moray Offshore Renewables we have a vision that we want to invite you to share.
We believe that by marrying the proven technology of onshore wind generation with Scotland's expertise in working in the deep and challenging waters of the North Sea, we can create a secure, plentiful supply of low-carbon electricity; enough to meet the need of almost half of Scotland's households, without burning any coal or gas; and without creating radioactive waste.

SUPPLY CHAIN DEVELOPMENT
As part of Moray Offshore Renewables’ ongoing commitment to the development of opportunities for Scottish and UK supply chain as part of the deployment of offshore wind generation infrastructure in the outer Moray Firth, we are working in partnership with Highlands and Islands Enterprise and Scottish Enterprise to deliver a series of supply chain engagement events in the Moray Firth area in Spring 2014.
Businesses with an interest in attending are invited to register their details using this Supply Chain Registration Form
As part of standard regulatory processes, National Grid, Scottish Hydro Electric Transmission and MORL have agreed to change MORL’s connection point to the National Grid from Peterhead to New Deer. This will deliver a more economic and efficient connection, so MORL has published a Scoping Report for these modified transmission infrastructure proposals. For the purposes of Scoping both onshore and offshore works are included in this report. A copy of the scoping report is available here: Transmission-Infrastructure-Scoping-Report-2014
